My game lags so much... why? Wolrd of Warcraft


Recommended Posts

I dont know where to post this, but I guess that's why I'm posting it here  ;)

Here's my problem.. in the game World of Warcraft, I lag so much.

If there are numours people present, a lag is understanble. However, sometimes when there's no one around, I still lag. It feels "cluncky". It's not a smooth movement and I dont know the cause of this.

Here's my spec:

Processor: Intel® Pentium® 4 CPU 3.00 GHz

Memory: 1022 MB RAM

Graphic card: GeForce 6800 GS 256 MB

hi coldcell

welcome to the forum

seems like you have a pretty OKAY PC and your connection seems fine too

well the speed maybe not the Latency

latency is what causes lag, and here are a few things u could do to spot latency issues

i don't know how WoW works, so i don't know if u could do a tracert to their server

but i am sure they have 100's of servers so u wont be able to

try doing a tracert to testmy.net

click on start > Run > type cmd and press OK

a window will open and then type tracert www.testmy.net

once that has finished u could also try typing ping -t www.testmy.net

let it got for a few seconds and then press CTRL + C to stop it

copy the results and paste them here also

the issue is not that you don't have enough bandwidth

please post ur results here

hi again coldcell

your issue is not bandwidth

as in you have enough bandwidth you dont need any more

your trace route looks very good actually

some of it under 10ms and all of it under 100ms which is really good

i really dont know why you have this lag problem

does any one have any other ideas?

Yes I have the latest graphic card driver installed.

I hardly play online games other than World of Warcraft, so I have no idea how my PC perform in other games. Though it works fine in single player games..

May be it's just WoW is demanding :S I thank you for your help though!
